About NOSM Education Research Communities

Group 2: Undergraduate medical students in any Canadian or international medical school (other than NOSM)  

NOSM invites you to come to Northern Ontario and to experience one-on-one learning opportunities with our dedicated preceptors in exciting learning environments.  It is our hope that once you have experienced the personal and professional advantages of life in Northern Ontario, you will come back to one of our residency programs, and even choose to practice in Northern Ontario. 

Preceptor Stipends

NOSM will pay your preceptor stipend.

Electives Application Fee

NOSM charges a $200 non-refundable application fee. 

Housing and Travel

Visiting learners and/or their faculty of medicine are responsible for their travel expenses and for sourcing and covering the cost of their housing.  However, NOSM does maintain many student housing units in communities across Northern Ontario, intended for students of NOSM.  If these are available during the time of your rotation, they can be made available at a subsidized rate of $500/month. 

Because we must prioritize the needs of students and residents registered at NOSM, we are not able to confirm housing until 4-8 weeks prior to the start of your rotation.  As such, we encourage learners to secure their own housing.  Once your placement is confirmed, NOSM can provide contact information for people in your placement community,  who can help you source housing during your placement.

To Apply  

NOSM is pleased to invite visiting undergraduate learners to apply for electives placements through the AFMC Student Portal.

You are required to apply 16 weeks in advance of your desired electives.

The portal will guide you through the process.  You will be prompted to upload necessary documents, and you will receive e-mail reminders and notifications throughout the process. 

We look forward to receiving your applications and welcoming you to Northern Ontario.
